Office Relocation Management - From Start to Finish
How to Project Manage an Office Relocation
A successful office relocation requires a well defined Office Relocation Project Plan to co-ordinate your company's smooth transfer to the new office.
Where to Start?
There are some big decisions that need to be considered before you start planning an office relocation. These include:
- The reasons behind the office move? How you intend to exercise notice on your current property
- How much is the office move going to cost? Develop a Moving Office Budget to ensure you have considered all cost considerations
- What is the approximate timeframe of the move? Follow this Office Relocation Timeline for help.
New Office Requirements
You will need to prepare a detailed specification of your new office requirements. This will include considerations such as size, office facilities, location, style of building, layout configuration etc. The Office Space Checklist will give you some key pointers about what you should be considering for your new office.
Office Relocation Project Schedule
What are the key dates for your office relocation project? All deadlines need to be co-ordinated with your chosen Office Removals Company to ensure that the move is seamless and there is no interruption to business services.
How (and when) are you going to communicate the office relocation to staff and clients? You will need a clear Employee Communication Project Plan to ensure that you manage the change effectively for staff so that their productivity or morale does not suffer as a consequence of the move.

Consider the impression you want your new office to give, and what office layout would best suit your corporate culture and working practices. Get advice from an experienced Office Fit-Out Company who will transform your new office to an environment that both enhances your image and increases productivity.
